The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. It’s one of those classic books that everyone has to read.

Tom Sawyer, is a young boy with wild dreams who just can’t sit still. School to him, is just torture and, as soon as he gets out he decides he wants to go be a pirate with Huckleberry Finn one of the local boys as well as Joe, another local boy.  They spend days adventuring the island and having fun until, they decide to surprise the town and come back.

Once they come back, there is a big murder case about the death of Dr. Robinson. It was either Injin Joe or Muff Potter. The thing nobody knows, is that Tom and Huck where there is witness it all. I’d say this is my favorite part of the book with questions burning up inside of me like, will they tell court who really did the murder or will the right person get arrested? After it all, the right person gets arrested but, the other runs away!

You’d think after all this, Huck and Tom would have had enough adventuring for awhile but, nope. They decide they want to look around the island for buried treasure.

Then Tom goes on a trip out to the cave with his class. But, being Tom he convinces Becky, his love interest, to stay with him after the trip is over and explore the cave. But, they get lost.

This book, weaves a murder case with a murderer on the loose with with the tale of Tom, a restless kid from the 1800’s. It really shows you what it would be like to live in the 1800’s.  I would really recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an adventure book. Though, the book does have some words that are not used often anymore so, it can be a little stretch for the brain to figuire out what everything means. But, personally I think its just part of the fun of reading this book.
